The Moon and Venus, Sunday May 20

The western horizon as seen in the southern hemisphere about an hour after sunset (click image to enlarge).

Venus and the Moon are attractively close together, and with Orion also near the horizon it makes for a rather beautiful evening.

Venus is moving through Gemini and by the end of the month will form a line with Castor and Pollux.

UPDATE: Hello everyone coming in from Universe Today! Hope you saw the Moon and Venus together, if not, check out the image I took when the local clouds finally parted.

I saw the Moon and Venus together last night, outside at a poetry reading in Ojai. Very beautiful evening.
